UPDATE : Please note this only works on a 2G network – which means it wont be able to work for long anymore
the Dual Flashlight, FM, Dual Sim, Power Bank, TV, Mobile Phone everyone should have in there bug out Gear,
I don’t really often do gear reviews but this one stands out for me as an epic buy for your bug out bag, get home bag, or earth quake pack ,
Firstly it replaces 5 main items in your bag.
Its a torch — with a pretty long battery life,
an FM radio, we should always have one of those in a disaster ,, and having this in one package makes it lighter and takes up less space. i dont think you should completely remove a spare from the pack but its way better then using a cell phone and has a separate button for turning it on and off,, way awesome
its water resistant and impact resistant, and that equals heavy.. not a bad thing.
,It has a removable battery , so a spare can be carried, epic…
it has is a mobile power bank for other cell phones and devices.good to remain connected if you just need a recharge, out side of real SHTF.
its the price, size, shape and weight of a plain power bank ..so why not get the extras,
it has a Dual sim card… and a SD card slot up to 32 GB …
Dual sim need i say more.. we all have issues getting signal in the wild .. or in a natural disaster .. if you have a mobile with one sim that can be changed with this one.. then 2 more in this phone .. then you have 3 networks .. and that’s 3 times more chance of getting comms through than if you only had one ..
It doesn’t have a GPS, but does support data, voice and text, this is important to some as they don’t like it with big brother watching .. well this phone is not android and wont load facebook, or email, but does have a basic web browser . if that concerns you .. you are a lot harder to track with GSM only … only down to the closest tower …
can take photos and video… bad ones … but its better than nothing , and send and receive mms,
it has an analog TV receiver built in , if available in your area for news, etc .( sadly it doesn’t work in my area )
it can’t load pdf’s but maps and other docs can be stored as images so convert them to jpegs and you are fine
Right now, in my EDC bag, I have a spare Flashlight, FM radio , Power Bank and a Mobile Phone, this will replace them all for less weight and less space, – and at $35 why the hell not.

Do you happen to know if it supports ATSC tv signal?
Hi . Not sure what atsc tv is , but it’s analog only … which means I can’t use it here as they switched off the signal where I am a few years back ,also means I can’t test it
“DTV Status compares the worldwide digital broadcasting systems ATSC, DTMB, DVB-T/DVB-T2, and ISDB-T. For terrestrial broadcasting of digital TV programs four competing systems are used. … Now known as DTMB (Digital Terrestrial Multimedia Broadcast).”
We use ATSC in the United States as well as Japan. I was just curious if the phone supported ATSC or DVB.
After further research it looks like it doesn’t support digital at all.
Nope doesn’t seem to , Ive got two of them and they are not bad phones , mostly because I had a spare phone , a torch and a battery bank in my edc gear . Swapping it for this phone made sense , FYI they do have a very basic browser that is functional . But like a really old Nokia 6310i , one down side is, it doesn’t have a PDF reader , so the data card is of limited use
HI, Any idea where I might find a spare battery for this? TIA
hi not sure they probably have them on aliexpress . or banggood.com
